Start your home search on Zillow.com by typing in a neighborhood, city, county, or zip code and clicking the magnifying glass icon to load the search result page.
- The search result page contains a map view and filters to refine your search further. At the top of the map, you can add additional areas to your search by typing them into the search bar.
- On the right side of the map, you can narrow the location of the search and adjust your search results by using the tools to zoom in and out on the map. You can also change the map type.
- You can also draw your own custom search area by using the Draw tool to search in the area you are interested in. Your results will then be limited to that customized boundary.

Viewing your search results:
To give you a quick way to filter your search, we’ve grouped listings into two categories: Agent Listings and Other Listings. You can easily toggle back and forth to find great homes in each group. More information here.
When viewing the listing results, you can also Sort by: Most Recent Change, Homes for You, Price (High to Low), Price (Low to High) Newest, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Square Feet, and Lot Size.
To search by schools (grade level or school zone):
Click on the Schools dropdown to show the schools on the map . You can limit your search results based on grade level (elementary, middle, high school), type of school (public, private, charter), and rating (provided by GreatSchools.com) using the filter box.
Click on a school's graduation cap icon to view more details about the school. To see homes within a specific school's boundary lines, click View homes this school serves. The search results will update to display only the homes that fall within that school’s boundaries.
